Foodie Friday- Christmas Parties

Blogmas Day 4;

The Annual Christmas Party is something which people have a love-hate relationship with.  It’s a time to kickback and get to know your colleagues better but for some it can get a little out of control.

The general consensus as mentioned on TV3’s Midday was to try to refrain from;

  • Kissing your boss
  • Getting outrageously drunk
  • Dancing on tables

Also mentioned was the startling figure of 39% of people who admitted to hooking up at Christmas parties!

My Christmas Party was a dinner in a local restaurant, Kirwan’s Lane, followed by (an excessive amount of) drinks in a late bar.

The menu was varied and included a lot of seafood.  The first thing that caught my eye were the fresh oysters.

I was really excited about trying them for the first time and they did not disappoint. They were unbelievable.  Definitely a must try for everyone!  Ohh and if you do try them make sure you have a half pint of Guinness with them- it really adds to the flavour.

For the main I went with the safe option of a medium-rare steak.  This is the only way you can eat steak in my opinion.  Any more done and it’s ruined..

Dessert was a lemon posset that I really wasn’t overly keen on.

Quick note on my outfit;  Storm Desmond has been wrecking havoc on Ireland so I went with the more sensible choice of dressy leggings and a flowy top with wedge heels and my black trench coat.  I could not have left the house in a dress last night!
